Swedish Meatballs Over Mashed Potatoes

When we lived in Georgia my husband worked with an older man who I just adored. Being a Recreational Therapist who specialized in Long-Term Care I just couldn’t help but think this guy was so cute! He and his wife had a love of eating out, trying new food and sharing their recipes. My absolute favorite one that they have to us was for Swedish Meatballs. There was nowhere within 179237 miles of where we lived to get these at a restaurant so I had to master them myself at home in our kitchen! I can literally devour these, like literally!!! They are simply amazing! You must make them!!

    Remove meatballs from pan. Leave fat in pan (I didn’t have any because I used 93% lean ground beef…so that butter came in handy!) Stir in flour. Add water and bouillon cube (I used 2 to make up for the lost flavor from the lack of excess fat).Easy Swedish Meatball Recipe | Gathered In The Kitchen
